P50 camera freeze after Win10 1809 Update



Built-in camera of my Thinkpad P50 after "October 2018" 1809 Windows 10 update or some later update has been broken. It works for few seconds only and then picture freeze. There are general hacks available in Internet like to add this key to Windows Registry:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform\EnterFrameServerMode and set it to 0


but unfortunately since above change, although the picture not freeze after few seconds, apps (like Skype or Windows Camera) have started to crash very often while displaying the picture from camera, so I removed that key.


I have checked privacy settings and camera is on there and apps I use are allowed to use it.

Should I wait for driver update or is there any other solution?
